Forum: GratefulDead Subject: I need some help with the 80's-90's....

I figured I would turn to the "experts" to get more into some Mid to Late 80's and early 90's Dead....I rarely venture out of the years 70-83 and only have a small amount of shows post-83...

I have all of the Brandford shows and all of the Bruce shows from that period (9-20-90 is my fav), but I feel that I need a more rounded collection from Brent and Vince....I got Early Brent covered (79 to 81 just cooks!!!) and with the Bruce shows I feel I have a good start on Early Vince...But alas, I need more...

I LOVE to read all the reviews here from shows, whether it be by someone who was there or just a fan giving his 2 cents worth on the recording...I have gained so much insight on the band and their music from all you fine folks..

So bust out your favs from the 80's and 90's, I don't care if they are DP's, Official Releases, Auds or SBDs from here..I just want to know what is "HOT" from a time period I know little about (I was 16 in 95, and never saw Jerry live, been trading since 14 but got stuck in 73-74 for a decade)...

THANKS ARCHIVE.ORG and DOUBLE THANKS TO ALL OF PEOPLE HERE ON THIS GREAT SITE!

There are a lot of good ones. I will leave you with just one.

3-24-1990
The AUD of this blows away the sbd or the commercial release.
It's a free download. The AUD really brings out the drums and the love in the crowd.

There is nothing in the Dead catalogue quite like that Terrapin > Mind Left Body Jam. IT's just perfect, and one of the longest MLBs around at 8 minutes. One of those magical moments you can't get anywhere else. The whole show is flawless. The NFA > Goodnight at the end is very sweet as well, for a minute or two it's just the band and the crowd singing together.

I happen to think 89-91 were great years for the band, very tight. There's good stuff to be found everywhere imo but I wouldn't go out of my way to listen past 91. After Bruce left there's not much I come back to.

I'll get back to you on the rest

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Yeah, Post-93 kinda frightens me....

Jerry seemed to be going down fast.....

Keep em coming guys, this is a great start and I will be listening to some of these shows once the work day ends....

89-91 seems to be a pretty hot period, but I always heard once Brent passed that Jerry lost some of his spark for the band....

I'm not big on the 80's or 90's but I really like the July '89 Alpine Valley shows and just about any show from late March 1990, early April 1990. Some really inspired playing.

Here is a nice show, and it's certainly not the only one. Really good Help>Slip Franklin to kick off a good show:

http://www.archive.org/details/gd1990-03-30.sbd.cutler-mix.miller.89173.sbeok.flac16

As the Dead waned in the 90's, the Jerry shows took up the slack. Some of my favorite JGB and Garcia/Grisman stuff came post-91.

I'm already jumping into some of these shows.....Thanks so much for helping out.....

That Aud from 3-24-90 with Terrapin>MLB is sick....I always liked "Dozin".....

Looks like Alpine 89 is a winner.....I'm off to that next...Then some of those Late 89 shows that were mentioned...

Thanks again!!!

Lot of good stuff in the late 80's early 90's in which many have been listed above. Basically hard to go wrong in 89,90,91. 84-88 has some super hot shows and runs especially 85 and 87 from what I've listened to. Some stuff to look for
88-6-30
88-7-2,3
88-4-1
87-7-2
87-4-2 lot of great stuff on this spring tour.
86-12-30
85 Lot of hot shows but if you get confused go to the SPAC' or Greek's
84 not a year I know very well but again the Greeks are great and the Hartford Oct. run is pretty hot too.
Also if in doubt Go to MSG from any year. A lot of killer shows in there to discover.
Have fun.

6-25-85, Blossom. It's a highlight of the 80s. It's really so good throughout the highlights are too numerous to list. Garcia more or less doesn't miss a note the whole night.

A couple that I like to recommend that sometimes don't get the notice they deserve:

Richfield, 1992-06-08 - Hot first set includes Stranger, Loser, Rooster, So Many Roads, Tom Thumb's, BT Wind and Don't Ease Me In. All great versions with energy typical of most Richfield shows. Set II is dynamite. Even Corrina sounds good, flowing into a sweet and rare 'mind left body' jam (often mistaken for 'dear prudence'). The dark star is tight and edgy, the first night of a three-part dark star that was finished later in the tour.

http://www.archive.org/details/gd1992-06-08.sbd.miller.89981.sbeok.flac16

The Palace - 1993-06-09 - This is a strong show, especially for Jerry. The first set hits its stride from Franklin's on -- minus Ch-easy Answers -- but including a nice Loose Lucy one of the best Bertha's I've heard in latter-day Dead. The energy carries over into China -> Rider and picks up again in a great Terrapin, including a really interesting jazzy jam/transition into Drums. But really almost every song totally jams, even wave to the wind sounds good. check out jerry jamming at the end of wharf rat!! you'd be hard-pressed to find a better version of this classic song. no kidding. a shining moment in what was a pretty spotty period for the Dead. The previous night has an awesome Bird Song too.
